since my daughter started school full time im finding that im so tired all the time when shes not here.she has alot of problems that go with her condition and when shes here im forever watching her playing with her makeing sure shes ok.im even up most nights with her.shes 6 years old and should have been full time after last xmas but because of problems at school she was with me most the time because they would only let her go for 1/2 an hour a day.we have since got her into a good special needs school(yes we have probs there but not like a mainstream school)and finaly goes everyday.just wondering what people about why i feel the way i do

I'm not an expert but it sounds like you were so winded up like the engerize bunny when your daughter was home and now that she is in school full time. It is like you have crashed and burned. Just relax and get the well needed rest and allow your body to get back to normal. After you are well rested you might want to get out of the house and do something for you.

In this world, God has chosen a few of us, to be the caregivers for children and other special needs people,because He feels that we have the capabilities to withstand the trials and tribulations one has to go through to care for these individuals! Be strong, do what you have to do, if you fall, get up again and keep going! Show Him that 'you' are a special person also, and somewhere along the way you will gain confidence and be proud of yourself! And this will give you strength! And always remember "he ain't heavy, he's my brother" !
